I think that converting cars is too costly, For a shaft driven car...I am very happy with my TB-01 rally. I have put the car through some serious tests and it still hold up well, also the gears are inclosed and stay free from dirt making basic maintence quite easy. I right now have a stick motor in it, but I am planning to put a 19t motor in it...

I just got my first real RC car, so I am stil learning.

What is the definition of a "Rally" car.

Do they have races for rally cars? What kind of track do they run on.

Are most rally cars touring cars that have been modified?

i have a xxx-s built for rally. im running xxx-4 front tires all the way around. with a 200mm body in the car.wiht rally shocks. this thing is great. I run the car on our normal offroad track during practice and some times i jump in with the electric class. it takes jumps like a champ.the traction is great. rally is fun i just wish it would catch on here in the states.

that's cool, bro.

do you have some pix to post? i have a xxx-s laying around - i wouldn't mind doing the same thing - can you post your mods & setup.

i HAD a pretty tricked out landmax 2 - modded to the hilt. my friend (that a**hole!) ran it into a curb. i've just been too lazy and too busy to rebuild it. i guess i really can't blame him. we were sluggin brews & did a little drunk driving

...RC DRIVING that is

Is there a viable replacement for the rally weapon to adapt standard wheels to it?

Default Hex adapters

After I posted I checked if the RPM hex adapter for the rally weapon was still available. According to the RPM website it is still in production. Good news to me.

The rpm wheel adapter is still around. Get one, not only does it make the car work with standard wheels it makes it a touch wider and more stable.

I have it on mine and love it.

Default Rally Car?

I have been wanting an offroad vehicle but not a truck so i was looking at buggies but then i saw some rally cars and they looked really cool. So i was wondering what is a good electric rally car that can take jumps with out having to worry about breaking something each time.
